    Hungarian music, which bears the influence of folk, gypsy and Jewish tunes, is a living and breathing European tradition with its own unique instruments. Listen out for cimbalom master Kálmán Balogh, dazzling fiddler Róbert Lakatos, and traditional gypsy party band Parno Graszt.

    The twenty-first century has brought exciting and inspiring times for Hungarian music. Masters and students alike experiment freely and confidently with tradition. The Rough Guide to the Music of Hungary traces out a journey via the sounds of Hungarian, Gypsy and Jewish tunes from the Carpathian Basin.

    A fantastic bonus album is provided by up and coming band, Tárkány-Müvek who fuse together the raw energy of traditional Hungarian folk, the intellectual rigour of classical music, and the spiritual depth of avant garde jazz and poety together into one fabulous mix.
